Hi, I'm Curtis See my profile

My story

I’m a 60-year-young American (as of July 2011), a writer for magazines and short stories, the director of Elixir Mime workshops and theatre for the deaf; the director of Elixir Scripts—producing inspirational screenplays; a motivational writer and speaker for the MOVE program; and a puppeteer and professional mime and animator for the event company Party Pixie. I live in Mumbai, India.

Why I am a member of the Family International

I am attracted to TFI’s application of spiritual principles to daily life and the high level of commitment to the furthering of the mission. TFI also encourages creativity and community-building projects. I like the dedication and passion of other TFI members who I work with.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through teaching my grandchildren God’s Word every day, teaching mime workshops for deaf and underprivileged children, writing faith-building articles which I share with the public, and via my personal interaction with others. I also distribute Activated magazines.
